    Yeah,what some other users have mentioned is correct and ironic. Yahell talks about downloading and saving content that you want to keep...BUT I haven't been able to download one photo in several days. Hard to download content when the download operation doesn't work. LOL!

    "Attention: Starting December 14, 2019 Yahoo Groups will no longer host user created content on its sites. New content can no longer be uploaded after October 28, 2019"

    FINALLY, Yahoo is actually doing the right thing! Since they are INCAPABLE or UNINTERESTED in maintaining their groups in a usable form, this IS the right decision. I've been saying for months...just be honest with the users and tell them that groups will not be viable anymore! Why they didn't do this about a year ago I don't know. They have been screwed up more in the last year than workable!

    Yahell, just be honest with the users and say you don't give a **** about whether groups ever work again properly or not. Just be straight with people and admit you don't want to spend the time to keep the groups operational because they have been inoperational more than operational in the last year or so. At least be honest enough and tell people you are closing the groups due to not being able to maintain them.

    Still takes about 6 tries to load maybe 50 photos where of course it should take 1. Basically, it takes half of the photos each time....25...then 13....then 6....then 3....then 2....and then the last one. BTW,now Yahoo's main page when opening up articles sometimes has other text superimposed on it. My God, Yahoo must have the worst programming dept on earth. This recent issue has been going on for 2 or 3 days now!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Still hit and miss, mostly miss! Once again, this is either gross incompetence or they are employing pieces of the process that don't fit together well....i.e. incompatability. Quite often I notice the same pattern when trying to load like 30 pictures...3 in a row do fine...then the next 3 are skipped...then the next 3 load OK...then the next 3 are skipped, etc, etc, etc.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    To load 69 photos it took me about 15 passes since it would only load about 1/4 of what I tried to load each time. Should have taken a grand total of 2 passes of course.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    SLIGHT improvement....the photos already loaded are at least showing up now but still not being able to upload new ones

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Time to stick a fork in Yahoo Groups...they're done! The least they owe people is the announcement that they are closing the groups. Obviously, they don't support them anymore which is essentially the same thing.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    It took 1.5 hours to get 172 photos to load in an album...should have taken like 8 minutes (50 pic maximum per loading of course). Finally got them all in but took like 15 passes to do them all since it would only do about 1/3 to 1/2 submitted in a group. BTW, an interesting pattern...the ones that made it were in sets of 3. In other words, it might do 4, 5, 6, then skip some...12, 13, 14 were done...skip some more, etc. There was clearly a pattern in the ones that made it.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I have to try several times just to get 1 photo to upload properly. Seriously, they either need to fix this PERMANENTLY or just announce they are doing away with the groups entirely.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I recontacted Verizon via a chat on their Facebook group (Verizon of course bought out Yahoo a while ago). They at least pretend to care and ask questions back like "how long has this been going on"...."what is specifically the problem within the groups" but of course they eventually say "we really have nothing to do with their operation since we are separate from them even after the buyout". They do claim to kick it upstairs in their line of command but unless someone starts getting after Yahoo, THEY are obviously either do incompetent or too disinterested to fix this problem which has been happening on and off for really at least 2 years...the SAME problem!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yeah what was partially working a few days ago is back to almost nothing working. If you try hard enough with enough attempts, you might get a picture or two to load. I still don't know if the programmers are incompetent, the xa.ying cloud site is an issue, or a combination of the two. It really doesn't matter I guess since the product is basically non-operational. As I've said, they either need to fix this permanently or announce they are closing the groups. I'm fine with either but to PRETEND like they are supplying a working product is nonsense.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Good idea, Christopher, and I just sent them a message saying what the problem is, that it lasts several days, and that is happens repetitively. OK, they gave me the same link I'm sure they gave you and I did send Yahoo a message from the can't load a website properly and when asked if their suggestions solved my problem, I picked "other" saying it didn't and informed them of the Photos problem in the groups. That is about all we can do I guess is complain and describe the problem accurately but my guess is after so many times they has occured, they know EXACTLY what the problem is and either can't or don't care enough to fix it. I told him that I am a software engineer myself and that there is no excuse for the SAME problem happening over and over again! Once, fine....maybe a second time COULD be possible, but this is literally about the 20th time this has occurred in the last couple of years!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things but myself and some others have blamed incompetent programmers (still could be the problem) but I'm beginning to think that they have a cloud storage area that sucks....https://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups... Either way, it is absurd that they can't figure out a PERMANENT fix to a feature (Photos in groups) that has literally been around for over a decade!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    And yes, it is happening YET AGAIN! Wow!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    And once again, Photos are not uploading

    Anonymous commented  · 

    My prediction is this will never been fixed! Over 3 weeks now that is has been broken and hasn't worked one single day during that time. Stick a fork into Yahoo groups...they're done!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Now, it has been broken for literally 3 weeks straight and you can't even vote this topic to a higher level. This not only shows incompetence but now corruption!

    Photos still not uploading...what a shocker! :-(

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I've said this during the many other times the SAME issue has occured. Yahoo simply needs to give people notice that they are closing the groups. There is NO NEED to continue to scam and con people into believing they have a functioning product. They do NOT!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I thought it amazing that this topic hasn't moved up in rank. Well, I can only speak for myself but Yahoo is NOT accepting votes on this topic. I make 3 votes and my available votes are NOT reduced which means they aren't counting my votes. So we now have a COVER UP in addition to their gross incompetence!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Once again to rli, I can't say anything about Windows 10 but the Yahoo groups photo upload problem has nothing to do with Windows 7 updates. I successfully loaded pictures to my Yahoo groups 3 days after the last Windows 7 update and turn off my computer every night. So the problem for me is related to Yahoo, not Windows being updated.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    To rli's theory earlier this month about this problem "I found ever time Microsoft does a Windows update to my computer, then yahoo is messed up" Can't speak about Windows 10 but I still run Windows 7...not the cause of the problem. Last updated Feb 14 and have loaded many photos since then until it stopped working about 3 days ago

    Anonymous commented  · 

    And yet again...photos don't upload! Wow!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Apparently, we are back to the chronic problem of photos not uploading...it was fine for a couple of months but now they are not showing up in the groups despite there being no error message

    Yep, uploading photos is not working YET AGAIN! Unbelievable since this a feature that has been around for years!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Day 6 of Yahoo Groups held host.age by incompetent software and programmers.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I think this is incompetence and not malice. They did fix it for a couple of months but the fact that the SAME problem keeps coming back time and time again says they don't know how to fix it permanently...that is incompetence.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Pretty amazing that they can't keep a feature that has been around for many years in proper working order.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    As m.v. commented on June 26th, several days ago, photos were able to be loaded to ALL of my groups successfully. For the last several months a couple of the groups were working fine and a couple of the groups were not allowing photos to be added. Hopefully, they have fixed this feature for good!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yeah,I flagged that Anna post...due to it clearly being SPAM! Saying the same thing 50 times doesn't help the cause!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    As a poster recently said, and I also said, it has improved SOME. Several days ago, I hadn't been able to post Photos since December 5th. I have been able to post hundreds in that same group since then. The other groups that have worked better the past few months are still working. HOWEVER, I usually have to make multiple attempts to post the pictures before it works. Also, I have found that starting the posting process by "adding photos" and then waiting a minute or two before actually attempting to post them helps. It is NOT a quantity issue or a photo size issue but MIGHT be a timing issue of some sort. Regardless, obviously there is none/almost none support of groups at this point by Yahoo/Verizon.

    Please flag Anna's UMTEEN comments advertising her website. This is supposed to be a place to report problems...not a SPAM fest where countless times, someone advertises a group.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Might want to try loading photos again...I just loaded hundreds in a group that literally hasn't worked at all since Dec 5th (at least as far as photos goes). I loaded pictures in both existing albums and created new albums and loaded photos in those also.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Time to start listing other options offered by other sites. Any suggestions? Also of interest would be amount of storage space for photos...any nudity in pictures allowed, etc. But I think it is a dream to think Yahoo is ever going to fix groups. They have 2+ months to do so and haven't even improved the situation...if anything it has gotten worse and expanded to other groups.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    One of two things is occuring. 1) Yahoo has decided not to support their groups anymore 2) Yahoo has the worst programmers on the planet. 2+ months and it is only getting worse. I'm having problems now on more groups than just the original one and also in the Files section in addition to Photos area. Once again, the simplest thing to try for them is to simply reinstall the software pre-Dec 6th or whatever. Everything was fine before about Dec 6th or so and somebody changed something and screwed it up.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    "groups.io is nice - but you only have 1GB free storage - that´s not much"

    Yeah, I noticed that too and I agree. Also, I created an .io group 2 days ago and still hasn't been approved. I don't think .io groups is the answer. That 1GB free storage isn't going to cut out. I'm already past that on some of my Yahoo groups. Then again, in at least one of my Yahoo groups, I won't ever be able to add any more photos since that feature stopped working literally 2 months ago.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Now, even a couple of groups that used to work with loading photos aren't working now either. Yahoo, just have the INTEGRITY to announce that you are doing away with Groups. At least have the guts enough to announce it publicly!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    I hate to say this but I don't think Yahoo is ever going to fix this. The fact that the majority of the groups still seem to be working fine...most of mine are...tells me that they probably don't have a clue what the problem is...and thus don't care to spend the time to fix it. An easy fix to me would be to rollback the current software running on the groups to say Dec 3rd or earlier. Even my broken group was working fine at that time. As long as they don't have to roll back the data areas/database or whatever, we should lose no photos on the working groups since only the software would be rolled back to the WORKABLE version.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    "We've been without photos since December 5" Yeah, that is the day mine quit working also. I have some photos dated December 5 that made it into the group that isn't working. Once again, seems like a software issue to me. Just back up to the previous software version December 5th or earlier. Not rocket science...it really isn't.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Just shut the **** groups down if you either don't care enough to make them work or don't have the personnel to maintain them. This is ****RIDICULOUS***. Some of my groups have been unable to accept photos for 1.5 months!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yesterday, I tried loading photos into 3 of my groups. The 2 that have been working the last 40 days are still fine. The 1 that has been broken related to uploading photos the last 40 days still isn't working. Status quo.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Apparently, they don't have the competence to fix this issue. On some of my groups that has been going on now for 5 weeks! Since you seem to be incapable of fixing this problem, I once again suggest you fall back to an earlier version of your software....last week in November or earlier should do it since this started in early December

    This is laughable! This MAJOR PROBLEM got ranked as high as 7th and as of this posting has dropped down to 13th. This has been going on more than a month and is very widespread and yet Yahoo lowers the priority!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    We are now entering the 2nd month where photos have not been able to be uploaded. Once again, it is not happening on all my groups but on some, for 31 consecutive days the Photos Uploading feature has not worked. Just drop back and restore a previous software version if you aren't competent enough to fix this major problem! Someone tried to add a new feature or fix something else and they screwed this up big time!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Now it isn't just the Photos uploading issue but apparently Yahoo has decided to go into the jigsaw puzzle business. The homepages are all scrambled and almost unviewable. As I've said for years now, I don't think it is malice as some say. They just have the most incompetent programmers in the business who should be selling shoes or pumping gas or sacking up groceries. They are LAUGHABLE to call themselves programmers!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    2.5 weeks and STILL can't upload photos in one of my groups. To be fair, the other groups seem to be fine but apparently Yahoo has a huge bug that affects many groups in uploading photos and doesn't affect other groups.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Very bizarre issue since some of my groups the photo uploading DOES work and has worked but a couple others, the photos can NOT by uploaded.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yeah, the error message disappeared on the group where I still can't upload photos after getting it a few times. 2 groups I can upload photos...the 3rd I can't and has been that way for 2 weeks now

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Well, at least they now put out an error message (red box and everything) if the Upload fails. Actually, I just loaded an entire new album in one group...another group also is working....but still one of my main groups isn't working, so they do appear to be doing something.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    For the most part, photos are still not uploading for me, but I did notice a few days ago that in a group or two, single submitted photos would load and be seen in albums but if I tried single uploading in other groups, it worked no better than loading a group of pictures. So photo uploading is not completely broken but still messed up enough to be a big problem

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Wow, a week and a half of one of the MAJOR features of groups being broken! I guess if they have a programming opening, it should say "qualified and competent candidates need not apply". This is absolutely embarrassing that a feature that has been around for years and years can't even work anymore!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Yahoo, either FIX the problem or close the **** groups! Your programmers are absolute BUFFOONS!

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Photos still not working getting posted. They now CLAIM that they do as the uploading says it is complete but never actually posted. It appears like it works but when you check the albums or the newest pictures in the Photostream, they simply aren't there. Day 8 of yet another epic failure of a feature that has been around for years. Wow!

    Here's the deal, Yahoo. If you time and time again can't keep the Groups working properly, I think you owe it to the users to say "we are no longer going to have groups". People would respect ending the groups instead of half-heartingly trying to pretend like you care!
